Phil Davis is tired of just sitting by and watching other fights cash in on UFC title shots.
Davis, who will face Anthony Johnson in April at UFC 172, knows that he is expected to defeat “Rumble” based on his high rankings.
What he doesn’t know, though, is how best to work himself into the light heavyweight title picture.
“(Johnson) is not the guy I wanted, but pretty much everyone else was booked,” said Davis, in an interview with MMAFighting.com. “I’ll take it at this point. It can be any combination of things that get you a title shot.
“Apparently fighting Roy Nelson and then fighting Pat Cummins gets you a title shot. Maybe beating no one in the Top-10 like Glover (Teixeira) did gets you a title shot. There’s no rhyme or reason to getting a title shot.”
